Tax Relief: Theatres, Orchestras and Museums & Galleries

Tax Relief: Theatres, Orchestras and Museums & Galleries

Arts & Business Scotland has been working in partnership with Azets, Scotland’s oldest accountancy firm, to provide cultural organisations with invaluable tax advice.

As part of this three year partnership, tax guides have been developed accompanied by associated training workshops. This in-kind sponsorship arrangement between A&BS and Azets sets out to provide charitable cultural organisations across Scotland with the latest information on making the most of the tax benefits they are eligible for.

In addition, Azets has been providing A&BS with the latest news on tax law amendments as they appear. A series of tax tips from Azets covering Theatre Tax Relief, Orchestra Tax Relief and Museums & Galleries Tax Relief are available to download below.

The most recent guide, Charity Tax Budget 2018 Update, outlines changes which benefit charities including a corporation tax small scale trading exemption and an increase in Gift Aid Small Donation Scheme limits. The Charity Tax Budget 2018 Update can be accessed here.

Additional advisory tax soundbites will continue to be added as and when tax law changes may arise.
